Hmm...I agree with Invisible. Pikachu could be stronger. But I'm not too sure. Maybe their evenly matched?

no way raichu has better defences and attack than pikachu. Pikachu has a potential (both max EV's and IV's+Pikachu has llight ball) of 416 special attack, but Raichu only has 306 (max) but with better other stats.Take your pick

That's the problem, pikachu will have massive sp attack, but all of it's other stats won't be too good compared to raichu and other pokes he will be battling against. So unless pikachu always gets a one hit KO, he is doomed.

I agree with that. Raichu is more powerful all around since he is more advanced, with lightball, pikachu only has one extremely good stat, and the rest are all the same.

If you're going with a moveset, Pikachu would be stronger if Raichu had the same moves. The Light Ball is the key.

no pikachu has pretty good speed for NU (if you are playing netballte) in-game,hes still ok with speed EV's. Either way, they both suck

I got to tell you guys something, I don't know how to put it like this, Light Ball has no effect on Raichu.

This thread is kinda pointless, especially since the creator left.
I think Raichu would be stronger, but if you are a Pikamaniac, Pikachu isn't that bad (in NU).

Jimmie's got a pretty good point there, guys.

Then you'll have a supercharged (no pun intended) Raichu.

Yeah. A Raichu with Volt Tackle should even out. A Pikachu with one would hurt itself much more than a Raichu using Volt Tackle.

Too bad Raichu has no affect holding a Light Ball.

Default Re: who is stronger? A Pikachu with a light ball or a Raichu

They're both gimmicks. Personally, I'd go with Raichu because he actually has a chance of outspeeding something before he dies a horrible, horrible death. That, and he can Focus Punch half-decently. Admittedly, in D/P they're going to acquire Scheme but I'd still go with Raichu because of the speed advantage.

If Pikachu could use Surf and Volt Tackle on the same set I'd say differently but Pikachu doesn't OHKO anything with Thunderbolt whereas pokemons have absolutely no problem OHKOing him. And without Surf he's just retarded.
